Richie Redding is one of the funniest guys that you’ve probably never heard of. As a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania it was unlikely that his comedy career start off in urban rooms and burlesque shows, but that’s how it happened. He left the corporate world determined to get paid to have fun which is obvious every time he takes the stage. His set is edgy, high energy and autobiographical, drawing on a lifetime of ridiculous true stories that can only happen to a recovering alcoholic Ivy Leaguer that lives in the ‘hood.
His boy band looks and colorful word selection have gained him well-deserved attention, earning him a spot in HBO’s Comedy Festival as part of the Lucky 21 Show. In 2010 he moved to Jersey City and became a regular at New York’s top comedy clubs. In 2012, he was selected to perform in Walter Latham’s Comedy After Dark. That same year he also won the Bermuda International Comedy Competition. He has performed in five foreign countries and also had the honor of being selected to feature in a USO tour of South Korea, entertaining the 30,000 American troops stationed there.
